What the flying gently caress are these playoffs?

Okay I learned my lesson about betting against VGK. I really want Ovie to win his cup but goddamn I want to laugh at the entire league.

VGK in 7 so that Ovie loses his Cup in the most heartbreaking fashion.

If the Vegas Knights win the Stanley Cup, I will donate $100 to a charity to be determined later. There aren't a ton of well rated charities in Vegas, turns out.

It's tough to pick using my gut because both teams have a destiny feel. The Caps showing all kinds of balls coming down from 0-2 to Columbus, finally beating Pittsburgh, and coming back down 3-2 to Tampa.

And then Vegas who has the second coming of Christ in net, has been rolling literally all year, and who has that whole do it for the city thing going on that a lot of cinderella teams get.

I don't even know any more. I guess I'll say Vegas because A) Caps lol and B) Vegas has looked the most consistently impressive on the ice in the playoffs to me. Vegas in....5.

If the Caps win, I'll change my username to Mamma Lucia and have an avatar of CapitalsAS choosing until the 2019 Stanley Cup champion is decided.


Regardless of the outcome, I'll donate $10 x # of wins to a local Vegas and Washington charity. That is, if VGK sweeps, I'll donate $40 to a Vegas charity, and if WSH wins in 7, I'll donate $40 to a Washington charity and $30 to a Vegas charity, and so on and so forth.

and so are you.

So, since I got both series winners wrong, -8 points for 3rd round. My only consolation is that there are a hell of a lot of other -8īs too, supposing they are still calculating right. I've a sneaking suspicion some people haven't counted all their minuses due to the amount of points people have, but it's not like it matters very much.



As for final, since Vegas has already destroyed my bracket in every round, I might as well bet one last time against them: Capitals in 6.


If I had actual money I'd something that actually makes some sense, but I just don't so I that if Vegas wins the cup, I will in every single playoff predictions until I / the forums die bet on Vegas to win in 4 any series they appear in.

Too bad I missed predicting the second round considering I wasn't too shabby in the first one, but oh well.

I've been betting against Vegas this entire time so maybe I should actually believe in them for once. But no, I feel this is WSH's years and Fleury can't keep his form up.

My bracket was wrecked once Pittsburgh and Nashville lost so...uhh...VGK in 6 because they've shamed me for picking against them thusfar, MAF should have his second Conn Smythe in a row but it'll only be one because he didn't get it last year for dragging the Pens through the first two rounds.

gently caress, this is a hard one to call but I am going to go with Vegas in 6 and my bracket will be ruined in any way if Washington wins it all. That's a pretty good outcome though

Oh right, third round points were 12 from me, total of 65 over 3 rounds
